Mods, this could go possibly anywhere from the iPhone forums to the Community forums, so if you think it would be better elsewhere, please feel free to move it. This is pretty much an FYI for those that don't live in California but plan to visit or move there soon. Starting July 1st, 2008, people 18 and younger are not allowed to use their phones while driving, period. Those over 18 must use a hands-free device (headset, bluetooth piece, etc.) while driving. This applies to everyone in the state of California. If you are from another state or country, and such a law doesn't exist there, it does not matter. You will be pulled over and cited. No points/demerits on your driving record, but it will go on your driving record as reportable. More on this, plus a FAQ for those older and younger than 18 can be found at the California DMV. Funnily enough, the law doesn't prohibit DIALING, or SMS/Text messaging while driving. You also can use your speaker on the phone as well. But just as a heads up, You're going to get nailed here if you are talking on your phone and driving. Just in Sacramento alone on Tuesday, there were 86 warnings and tickets given early Tuesday morning in my area alone. So tread carefully while in Cali. BL.
